Copy and paste from the match thread because I didn't realise that Saint Oumar of the Lost Cause had his own thread
Niasse is a pest. I would hate playing against him as a centre half. I would back myself to stay tight for a while and take the ball off him enough because of his first touch, but you just know over 90 mins he would run you ragged and you would get further and further away from him until he did you in.
He's like erosion!
All the stuff about hard work aside though - his movement's excellent at times. Like when he went out wide and then ran back in for Lookman to play him in for the goal. Brilliant. Not just a work-horse at all.
P.S. I'm not backing myself against Niasse as a fat and forty armchair fan - I'm putting myself in the shoes of a PL defender - before anyone loses their tiny little mind over it.
